FRANKLIN COUNTY, Missouri (KMOV) -- A 5-month-old baby boy was found dead inside a mobile home at a Villa Ridge trailer park on Tuesday.
Authorities said they received a call of an unresponsive child inside a mobile home at #11 Sleepy Hollow Trailer Court around 8:25 a.m.
Deputies arrived to the scene and found the child, identified as Mike Kibbons, not breathing. They began giving him CPR until ambulances arrived. He was then transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
According to the child’s mother, the father has fallen asleep on a love seat with the child in his arms. When the mother woke up, she noticed the child was not breathing.
Deputies said there were no immediate signs of trauma to the child. Authorities said his exact cause of death will not be determined until an autopsy is performed.
Officers obtained a search warrant because of suspected drug activity at the home, but authorities said there is no evidence to suggest the child’s death was drug related.
